Sometimes life just feels like a mountain of work – energetically, mentally, emotionally. Maybe you feel like there is a lot of dead weight standing between you the freedom you truly desire. How can you skirt around all of these obstacles?
You might be the type of person who takes on responsibility a little too easily. You might take on other people’s work, as well as other people’s energetic burden. This is not your weight to carry. How can you set yourself free? Would a little of your own personal magic help? Could you create a bonfire in your backyard and write a list with some of the dead weight you are carrying on it and simply burn it? Release the burden to the universe? Release yourself of the responsibility of trying to please the people who are not easily pleased? You can’t please everyone, nor should you try.
At this time, it might be important for you to show up as yourself, even if conflict is created when you put your foot down and say you’ve had enough. This might be an important lesson for the people in your life. It might be an important lesson for you. Where in your life are you overly giving? When you create boundaries with your time and energy, how do people take it? This is an important observation. Not all conflict is bad, sometimes conflict is necessary to clear out some of that dead weight. And you know what you get in return? Freedom. You will become lighter and happier by leaving that burden in the past. Move forward knowing you are exactly where you are suppose to be.
You are being led away from stagnant energy in favor of claiming some time for yourself, your dreams and your wishes. Where are you being guided? Not all goodbyes are a bad thing, sometimes they are necessary stage in your personal growth. When you look up you see things some folks will never be able to see. Take what you learn and move forward with peace and acceptance in your heart space. Do no wish ill on anyone around you, including yourself. Be free. Saying goodbye to a relationship or friendship of longstanding is never easy work, but sometimes it’s necessary to leave relationships that have become stagnant, draining, or negative. Don’t feel obligated to do anyone else’s work for them. You know where to go and what to do. When you walk away you reclaim a part of yourself. If you choose to stay you get stuck. Release yourself from obligation, worry or judgement. Your intuitive guides will not lead you astray.

There might be someone in your environment helping you to heal on a soul level. What you don’t need to know is who, when, where, why, or how. Your mind is not going to help you with this process, but what you feel will. This healing is necessary. The experience will help you accept yourself and to find the courage to move in a more meaningful direction. You will start to show up more powerfully and authentically to the world around you giving your work more credibility and visibility as well.
In the past few weeks, we’ve hit some icy patches where emotions are concerned. Be gentle with yourself. Be kind to yourself. Be still. Allow emotions to come to the surface and allow yourself to feel. Grieve if you need to. You might be letting go of something, someone or some aspect of life that felt really important to you.
You might be someone who was taught that it’s not ok to express emotion, especially in front of others, but sometimes this is exactly what needs to happen. The more people we see expressing how they feel the stronger our emotional intelligence becomes as a collective and honestly, the more feeling something is normalized. If you can’t grieve in front of another person, look into a mirror and be that witness for your own grief. Forgive yourself for having the expectation that you should somehow arrive as this perfect person that is able to please everyone instead of just showing up as yourself. When you release pain, sadness, grief–you help others with this process too. You help the collective.
It’s a relief to see the Justice card in the mix. If you are someone who struggled with boundaries in the past, you are now someone who has learned a significant lesson and you will not tolerate anyone who doesn’t take you seriously. No longer will you extend yourself emotionally to those who cannot meet you halfway and no longer will you have the expectation that someone you don’t know should somehow know to provide for you emotionally, spiritually or energetically. It’s a win-win. What you are working on is so much greater than yourself. Your emotional work also helps with yours lineage and extends to your family.
Rest assured, you have a place at more than one table. You don’t have to sit with the same people each and every time. You are free to explore and know those relationships will still be there. On a soul level you might have connected with many people you have met in other life times, but also be open to meeting new souls that might have something new to teach you. You can’t always be the teacher, even though you might greatly enjoy that role, sometimes you need to let yourself be the student and allow others to show you the way in this incarnation. Arrive as someone who is humble. Arrive as someone who is respectful. Arrive as someone who listens. Arrive as someone who is willing to learn. Be discerning. Model integrity.Recognize you don’t know it all and be cautious around those people who express that they do know it all.
